Legends Lane is the home to Letchworth Garden City Rugby Football Club, one of the oldest and most successful junior rugby union clubs in the Herts & Beds area. It prides itself by fielding four senior sides every week and has thriving mini & junior sections.
Our 1st XV lead the way in the area playing three leagues above other local clubs, and have been the Herts County Cup Champions for the past two seasons running. We are also proud to be the home of the ‘Bravehearts’, the only team in the area for adults with learning disabilities.
On Sunday mornings our pitches are full of children from the age of six to seventeen being coached our wonderful game. Men and women, the young and not (so) young meet together to be part of a rugby club whose history is as proud as its future is bright. So many of our current and past players who have had the privilege of wearing the ‘Black & Amber’ shirt give their time freely to enthuse, inspire and educate the children who are the future of Letchworth Rugby Football Club. One of the most pleasing things about ‘The Legends’ 2015 Herts County Cup Final victory was that 16 out of the 18 players used were home grown talent. That says a lot about the ethos and the vision of the club over the past 10 years.
We have a thriving social scene too, and take great pride in our hospitality – supporters/social members are welcomed with open arms. Our pre-match lunches for 1st XV games and our regular sportsman’s dinners offer great food, great company and great entertainment. We often have live music in the Clubhouse on match days too. We are a truly community based club, and last year our charity balls raised £2000 for North Herts Hospice and Macmillan. Whether you want an enjoyable day out with friends and family, to entertain your clients or to treat your work colleagues you will find a warm welcome here at the Club.
We have excellent facilities, including four full size rugby pitches, a floodlit training area, the best in coaching and physiotherapy, a gym and a club shop. The Clubhouse has recently been refurbished and we are planning further improvements, including a refurbishment of our changing rooms and re-surfacing the car park.
The future for Letchworth Rugby Club is bright both on and off the field. Come and join us!
